OUR Walmart Black Friday Protesters
Declare It Red Letter Day For Workers!
With
. Elaine Rosier, Walmart worker, Miami Florida
. Gabe Teneyuque, Walmart striker, St. Paul, Minnesota
. Secaucus, New Jersey Walmart worker allies

Walmart faced not only a throng of shoppers on Black Friday but what a union-
backed group, Organization for Respect at Walmart, (âOur Walmartâ) said was
the biggest wave of protests that the retailer had ever seen; 1,000 stores had
demonstrations in 46 states, ranging from a couple of community supportersâ
asking to talk with store managers about raising wages to raucous
demonstrations in California, New Jersey and Washington that each attracted
hundreds of people. âIn its 50-year history, Wal-Mart has never seen strikes like those weâre seeing today,â said Lynsey Kryzwick, a spokeswoman for OUR
Walmart, which works closely with the United Food and Commercial Workers
International Union. âIt will be hard for Wal-Mart to ignore all these workers and their allies calling for change at Wal-Mart from improving the low wages and unfair working conditions to fighting retaliation. Our Walmart, has filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, saying that Wal-Mart had
violated federal laws against intimidating workers who seek to strike or
otherwise protest by saying there could be consequences â in the form of
dismissals, demotions or reduction in work hours.
